Awesome moments, majestic... when the balloons launch the great aerial ballet of the Coupe Icare …

At dawn, in Lumbin, in the quiet cool air of the morning, the hot air balloons rise up slowly and drift gently away, thus launching the day’s programme of aerial demonstrations.

This year, thery will be about thirty balloons, alongside shaped balloons, dynabulles and other dirigibles,  from all over Europe will congregate for this most convivial and inspiring happening.
You might have a chance to watch them once again near sunset...
